Watery mouth at 7dpo.....sign of preg???

I've noticed a lot of water/spit in my mouth since yesterday. Does anyone else also experience this? It seems like I notice this happening only when I'm pregnant. Let's hope I'm right and I get a BFP in a week!

Lot's of BABY DUST!

I'm not sure if this is a sign or not, but I hope you get your BFP!

Hey thanks for replying! I looked it up on the internet and sure enough, it's definently a sign, and I think I remember having it with my other pregnancies. I'm not getting my hopes up just because of this one sign. I'll try and wait till I get a BFP!

There's an actual term for this sort of problem, but I can't spell it. It's also common in women who have REALLY bad morning sickness. That's me! I'm usually on some meds to keep water down the first 2 months. Blah!

I'm so sorry to hear your on hold till feb.:( I hope it goes by super fast for you and you get a BFP first try!

Hi! First off good luck to you this month. Im about 2 weeks behind you. I should ovulate in 7 days.

Okay my thoughts on this:

Pregnancy symptoms only begin after implantation takes place, and HCG begins being manufactured, which is 7-8 days post ovulation and it takes about 48 hours after implantation to get HCG numbers showing up.

The watery mouth symptom, I had it, but it isn't a "watery" mouth, it is PTYALISM, a terrible, horrible, awful ( i could go on lol) condition that goes along with hyperemesis of pregnancy which is uncontrollable vomiting. I developed it at 8 weeks of pregnancy and I was in the hospital for 2 weeks with it. I lost so much weight I looked like a skeleton. It isn't a "watery" mouth, THAT I could have dealt with, it is a constant nausea-inducing drool of the mouth where your mouth CONSTANTLY fills up with the drool every few MINUTES to the point your mouth is completely FULL of the drool. Hopefully not TMI, but when I was in the hospital I just left mouth mouth open on the pillow and let it constantly drool out. They were changing my pillow cases constantly. It was gross and the mouth constantly being full meant either you had to swallow it and throw it back up or let it just drool out and get over the absolute embarrassment of it all. Just the memories of it make me shiver. I never got that kind of morning sickness with my other 2 children thank God.

What you are speaking of, in my opinion, would not occur this soon and it doesn't describe pytalism of pregnancy. Morning sickness doesn't normally develop til 5-7 weeks of pregnancy because the hcg numbers have to get way up there for this to happen.

Believe me, this is not a symptom you want and if you have it you are normally vomiting nothing but stomach acid/bile up because you've vomited everything else up days before. It was the worst thing I have ever gone through during the happiest most exciting time of my life, my first pregnancy.

Simple watery mouth, especially at 7dpo is not a pregnancy symptom in my opinion because it is too soon to have pregnancy symptoms anyway. But that doesn't mean you aren't pregnant. I wish you good luck!

That's the term that I couldn't spell! I read about it on the internet. I know it's probably too soon to be a pregnancy symptom, and I'm sure I'm just reaching, but I did experience this with my other pregnancies. I had a chemical pregnancy in Oct and I started noticing the watery mouth at about the same time. This, I'm sure is just a coincedence, and I'm not even going to get my hopes up too soon. (well, not too much anyway)

I too have had really bad morning sickness. I was hospitalised with my first and my fourth. My second, I think I threw up about 3 times. Much better! On my third I was pretty sick but managed to get by. What makes pregnancies so different, I guess we'll never know.

If I am pregnant and this is a "symptom" then let's hope it has NOTHING to do with morning sickness!! That usually doesn't "kick in" till 6 to 8 weeks for me. (I think)

Well, thanks a bunch for replying and lot's of BABY DUST!!!!!
